Today, legendary New York hardcore-punk band Kill Your Idols have unleashed their new single, Simple, Short, & Fast, that is the band’s first original music since 2006. The track showcases all the classic glory of the band with fast-paced guitars, energetic drums and lyrics about real life experiences. The song comes alongside the announcement of a four-song split EP with fellow Long Island hardcore band Rule Them All that will be released digitally via Flatspot Records on February 4th with a vinyl release following in mid-2022. Both bands recorded with Kill Your Idols drummer Anthony Corallo, with Kill Your Idols tracks being mastered by Will Killingsworth (Orchid) and Rule Them All mixed and mastered with Brian McTernan (Battery, Be Well). 

“‘Simple, Short, & Fast’ is a song many can relate to. We all have that friend that thinks they can help by being pedantic. They mean well, but sometimes you just need to be alone in your thoughts. You need to sort it out yourself. But it’s also the perfect formula for hardcore music – Simple, Short, & Fast” (guitarist Gary Bennett)

You can stream “Simple, Short, & Fast” here now and be on the lookout for vinyl pre-orders coming soon. Kill Your Idols are also set to play two shows this weekend, on the 4th December they will appear at the Triple B Records Showcase at Brooklyn, NY’s Market Hotel and on the 5th December they play Massapequa, NY’s VFW with Koyo and Stand Still.
